BASIC ENGLISH, now in its seventh printing, is a general account of|
the system for readers with a knowledge of English. Part I is not
in Basic, because for those who have no English it will be put into
other languages, and for learners the same field is covered in The
ABC of Basic English and Basic Step by Step. It gives an idea of the
value of Basic as an international language, with a short outline of
the structure and the rules. Then comes a fuller statement of the rules
and the reasons for them; and, after that, a discussion of the learning
and teaching of Basic for all purposes. Part II is a Short Guide to
Basic, in Basicfrom a somewhat different angle and as an example
of the language. So this is the best book for the general reader who
is looking for further details after hearing about Basic from a friend or
reading one of those headlines in the newspapers about a new way of
putting an end to Babel.
THE BASIC WORDS, now in its fourth printing, is a guide to the
THE ABC OF BASIC ENGLISH, now in its sixth printing, is a guide,
BASIC STEP BY STEP, now in its third printing, gives a detailed|
account in Basic of the stages by which Basic English, as outlined
in The ABC, may be made part of the teaching system of any
country. The 850 words are grouped in thirty divisions of twenty-
five, with a small number of structure words in every group. Any- thing which would not be clear to the learner from the first simple
sense of the word has been listed; and the notes are based on
suggestions from teachers of experience in all countries. Though
not designed for regular school use in its present form, it is the best
guide for teachers and learners who are starting out to get a good
working knowledge of the system. On it school books in other
languages are being based, and with the help of more pictures like
the twenty-two given as examples, the senses of the different words
and of their expansions may be made clear without waste of time.
THE BASIC DICTIONARY, now in its fourth printing, is a selection
BASIC BY EXAMPLES, now in its second printing, gives all the chief
BASIC FOR SCIENCE is a discussion of the need for an international
BASIC FOR ECONOMICS, by Miss L. W. Lockhart, is based on a|
selection from the writings of Malthus, Marshall, Cannan, Lavington,
and Stamp, made by Professor Sargant Florence with a view to
covering as wide a range as possible, The 50 special words needed
for experts writing in this field of science have been printed at the
BASIC FOR GEOLOGY, by P. M. Rossiter, gives five examples of
BASIC FOR BUSINESS, by Mr. S. L. Salzedo, makes clear how
THE SOUNDS AND FORMS OF BASIC ENGLISH, by Mr. J.
FROM PICTURES TO LETTERS, by Mrs. Ellen Walpole, is a|
detailed account in Basic, for school use, of every step necessary in
the first stages of letter-making and simple reading. For the first
year the young learners, who come to school when they are three
years old, are trained in simple motions and operations, so that their
muscles may be ready for the work of the second year, when a serious
start is made at reading and writing. By the end of the second year,
most of them will have got through the book and be reading and
writing Basic without trouble. Though this system of teaching the
letters by pictures is a new one, it is clearly based on common sense,
and is the outcome of long experience. From the Basic point of
view the book is a good example of the value in education of the
general idea on which the system is based.
BASIC BY ISOTYPE, by Dr. Otto Neurath, is an example of the
way in which pictures may be made of use for learning the sense of
words and statements. Isotype is an international picture language
(see International Picture Language) and the signs are clear and
simple, so that the most important points are seen straight away and
are kept in the memory. About 500 of the 850, together with a
great number of complex words, are here covered. Two colours have
been used where necessary, and the pictures are without doubt the
best which have ever been produced for language purposes.
EVERYDAY BASIC (which takes the place of "The Basic Traveller")
KEÄWE'S BOTTLE is R. L. Stevenson's story "The Bottle Imp,"|
from An Island Night's Entertainment, put into Basic by Miss L. W.
Lockhart. For general reading or for school use this is one of the
best books on which to make a start, after the senses of the 850 words
have been made clear to the learner. In this story, Stevenson had
in mind the needs of the Samoans with whom he was living, and he
himself made use of very simple language which was sometimes
surprisingly near to Basic.
WISE WORDS OF AN EARLY AMERICAN is a selection put
THE GOLD INSECT is Edgar Allen Poe's "The Gold Bug" put
THE THREE SIGNS, and other American Stories, is a book of three
JULIUS CAESAR is taken from Plutarch's histories of Julius|
Caesar and Brutus in Lives of the Noble Grecians and Romans, by
Sir Thomas North. It has been put into Basic by Mr. A. P. Rossiter,
and only those parts of North's Plutarch which were used by
Shakespeare in his play have been covered. The form of North's
prose (taken from Tudor Translations (XI and XII) printed under
the direction of W. E. Henley in 1896) has been changed as little as
possible. This account of the turning-point in the histories of some
of the greatest men in Rome, starting at a stage when the growth
of Caesar's power first became a danger to Pompey, and moving
slowly forward till the Roman Empire was safely in the hands of
Augustus, is an important addition to the Basic school library.
GULLIVER IN LILLIPUT, by Jonathan Swift, has been put into
STORIES FOR THE YOUNG, by Leo Tolstoi, put into Basic by
THE TWO FRIENDS, by Ivan Tourgenieff (Basic by Mr. Noel |
Evans), is another attempt to put the work of one of the great
Russian writers before an international public. It is a simple country
story, full of quiet humour. Anyone who has the idea of learning the
language of Peter the Great and Lenin, will get great help not only
from the experiences of these friends but from The Basis and
Essantials of Russian and the Russian form of Basic Step by Step
printed in the U.S.S.R. STORIES FROM FRANCE, put into Basic from the French of
Charles Perrault by Mr. H. Walpole, is another addition to the
group of Basic readers for the young on the same level as Stories
from Hans Andersen, Robinson Crusoe, and Black Beauty. These
eight stories. " Cinderella," "Tom Thumb," "Bluebeard," and
the rest were loved by boys and girls even before the good Perrault
gave them their place in the sun in 1697. There is a touch of blood
here and there, but it is quickly washed out when the wrongdoer
gets what is so clearly coming to him.
JAPANESE STORIES, from Lafcadio Hearn, put into Basic by
ROBINSON CRUSOE, put into Basic by Mr. T. Takata, is a story
STORIES FROM CHINA, by T. K. Ch'u, is a selection from old |
story-books, the writer's memory of old stories handed down by
word of mouth, and present-day stories such as that about Nüwa
and the Sky, by Lu Hsün, whose death a short time back was a great
loss to Chinese letters. It will here be seen why the Chinese have so
little fear of death, how strong was the feeling that it is wrong for a
woman to get married a second time, and what sort of reactions the
old ways and beliefs are now producing. In fact, we may get from
these pages as much knowledge of Chinese ideas and theories of
living as from a history-bookif not more. THE CHEMICAL HISTORY OF A CANDLE, by Michael Faraday, put
into Basic by Phyllis Rossiter, is an example of the language at
work on the simplest level of international scienceusing the 100
genera1 science words, and the 50 for Chemistry and Physics. These
six talks given by Faraday at the Royal Institution in 1860-1 are
still a good base for all early school work in Chemistry, and at the
same time they give a clear idea of the reasoning processes responsible
for the growth of our knowledge. Faraday lets his young hearers
see how one question comes out of another; and the very heart of
his teaching is that wise doubt which is the start, if not the end, of all
THE OUTLOOK OF SCIENCE is one of two books which have been
made from a selection of papers by Professor J. B. S. Haldane and
put into Basic by Mr. W. Empson. We are here given the latest
views on how living beings first came into existence, man as a sea
animal, the effects of size, the value of scales, the future of man,
and how the earth will come to an end. This is not a book for experts
but for the general reader, so only the 850 Basic words have been used,
without the help of the special science lists. SCIENCE AND WELL-BEING is a further selection of papers by
Professor J. B. S. Haldane, put into Basic by Mr. W. Empson.
Like The Outlook of Science it gives us the views of a worker on
biology, a man of very fertile ideas and wide knowledge, on important
questions of general public interest, such as the need for Doubt,
what comes after Death, and the viewpoint of History. INTERNATIONAL PICTURE LANGUAGE, by Dr. Otto Neurath,
is a first general outline (in Basic) of an international system of
education by pictures ('Isotype'). The system is now ready for
use in all fields; and the material, here taken from the point of view
of teaching and advertisement, is in harmony with the selection of
pictures given in the same writer's Basic by Isotype.
THE MENO OF PLATO, put into Basic by J. Rantz, is an attempt to |
give the reader something into which he may get his teeth more
deeply than is possible with stories taken at their face value. The
more thought we have to give to these discussions of Knowledge and
its relations to society, the slower we go; but in the end, our
control of the language may be greatly increased by the fact that,
though the words were simple, their senses were frequently in
doubtPlato's purpose being to keep our minds working all the
THE ORGANIZATION OF PEACE, by Maxwell Garnett,
THE BASIC ST. MARK is part of a complete Basic Bible on which
THE BASIC ST. JOHN is the work of the Rev. Edwin Smith,
STORIES FROM THE BIBLE, now in its second printing, is a |
selection from those parts of the Bible which are most used by
teachers in schools, so that the system here is tested over a wide
range. The stories are given in their complete form, making possible
a comparison with any other Bible verse by verse.
THE SONG OF SONGS, put into Basic by Ma Than É, Basic
THAT NIGHTis a Japanese play by Mr. Kyôson Tumura, put into
BRIGHTER BASIC, by C. K. Ogden, now in its second printing, is |
chiefly for young persons of taste and feeling who are ready for
something a little less dry than the sort of material which is commonly
used in schools. Examples are given of Basic in everyday talks, in
story-writing, in verse, and in the art of the 'gagagram'making
clear how wide the range of Basic is, and how it may be used with
equal effect for amusement or for any sort of discussion. Learners
whose natural language is not English will be able to see from its
pages if, and how, they are at a loss when they come across words
put together with less respect for the rules than in Basic books with
a more serious purpose.

WORD ECONOMY, by Miss L. W. Lockhart, is an outline (not in |
Basic) of the new developments in the science of language of which
Basic English was the outcome, and of the value of theory in the
making of a simple and elastic system for international use. It
gives a clear view of the different uses and values of words for
everyday purposes, and of the different ways in which word
organization is possible. For the general reader it is the best account
of expansions (covering operations and directions together with the
commoner sorts of change of sense), special uses, opposites, and
fictions. Other books by the same writer are Basic for Economics,
the Basic Carl and Anna, Keäwe's Bottle, and Arms and the Man.

ARMS AND THE MAN, (Orthological Institute, 2/4 post free) by
AFRICAN BELIEFS AND CHRISTIAN FAITH, by Edwin W. Smith |
(The United Society of Christian Literature, 5/- post free) , is by a
writer whose earlier works, Ila Speakilng Peoples of Northern Rhodesia,
The Golden Stool, and Aggrey of Africa were based on a wide
experience of African conditions. The sense of a small number of
special words, such as clan, custom, slave, taboo, needed for African
purposes, is made clear in footnotes; and fourteen other words
(banana, buffalo, calabash, drum, eland, elephant, fig, hare, hoe,
hyena, lechwe, lizard, spider, wasp) come into the story. In 1935
Mr. Smith was President of the Royal Anthropological Society and
is an expert on African languages. He here puts Christian beliefs
before his African readers so clearly and naturally that, as The
Speaker has said (January 23rd, 1937), though keeping to the limits
of Basic," his excellent book seems thereby to win an added
charm." THE BIBLE: WHAT IT IS AND WHAT IS IN IT (Society for
Promoting Christian Knowledge, 216) is a book of 150,000 words
in Basic., by the Rev. E. Evans, Vicar of Hellifield and Professor
T. H. Robinson of University College, Cardiff, designed for Christian
readers in Africa and Asia. There is a short special list, on page 381,
giving the sense of all words outside the 850.
TWENTIETH CENTURY HOUSES, by Raymond McGrath (Faber
In connection with the Basic Science Dictionary, which will be |
ready in 1939, giving the senses of more than 20,000 words in Basic, a
number of additions to the Basic Science Library are now being
printed. In October, 1938, come Inventions Today, by Dr, H. Stafford
Hatfield, and The Growth of Science, by A. P. Rossiter. Science in
Society, by J. G. Crowther and The Roots of Science, by J. A. Lauwerys,
are listed for November; and, covering the general field from a
different angle, European Science and The Bases of Physical Science, by
Dr. Hatfield, who will at the same time be responsible for
of special branches of physical work.
Details of these and other science books now in the making will be
"As to novelty, I would draw attention to the fact (that might else pass |
unnoticed) that the book is written throughout in Basic English, a convention
that, seemingly sacrificing so little, appears to promise so much,instead of
making his choice from the 25,000 or so that I should have indolently had
recourse to in doing the job. The prose of the book is like the buildings it
profusely picturesclear-cut, purposeful, economical, efficient; and those
concerned to bring themselves up to date in the matter of language, and not
merely in that of building, are counselled to study Mr. C. K. Ogden's illumin-
ating notes that constitute the appendix."
CLOUGH WILLIAMS-ELLIS, F.R.I.B.A.
"Here is a book which, if virtue were not its own reward, should most cer-|
tainly be given two reviews-in parallel columns. For it is not only the best
book on its subject but it is written in Basic English and written beautifully."
"The Basic English in which the book is written is an interesting demon-|
stration of the intelligibility and essential sufficiency of that progressive
"A certain austerity marks this well-produced book. But for an unfamiliar |
look in some familiar quotations, a reader might well not notice that it was
written in Basic English. . . . We are none the worse for knowing that almost
half-a-million of the words found in The Oxford Dictionary have no place in
"It is not surprising that he has chosen the new medium of Basic English |
with which to clothe his thoughts, for by this means his book, which adopts
an international standpoint with reference to design, is more readily accessible
to foreign students. By limiting his vocabulary to a few hundred words, which
have been specially chosen for their simplicity and with a wide collective
range of meaning, he has succeeded in saying everything he wants to say in a
pleasantly fluent and unaffected manner."
The Journal of the Royal Institute of British Architects
"A delight for all those who love clarity in architectural design and liter-|
ature. Written in Basic English it is a model of clear and simple statement."
"Basic English, handled by Mr. McGrath, is flexible, fluid, and alive, |

literary quality is very high. "

Some ten years back, while Basic was still in the early stages, it |
seemed to us that there might be a use for stamps among the new
forms of picture-teaching which would have to be tested by the
Orthological Institute. In those days the number of picture-stamps
was small, and the organization of air-posts was limited to two or
three countries which made little use of the special stamps now
printed for long distance flights. Even so, we were able to put
together more than a hundred pictures, to which additions have
been made month by month.
